, and if they do not hit those, they have no chance. you have got national polling that shows governor romney increasingly and a strong place and certainly tightening up. other polls show president obama with a slight lead. is really tough to read, and the notion has been thrown up in the air because of the storm. >> i think a split in the alleged tora college is as likely as me winning the lotto, so i do not think that is a real alternatives. -- a split in the electoral college is as likely as winning the lotto, so i do not think that is a real alternative. and what happens at that point? >> i think it is possible. if you look at the polls in these states, president is strong in a handful of states. it is not going to be much more than 280 or 285, and given the fact that his numbers are going to come down from where they were in 2008, he is probably not going to do as well as he did with the circumstances he had, and if you add governor romney and a lot of red states, there is a possibility of one candidate, probably rendezvous' anymore popular votes and greeted romney winning popular votes
! (laughter) how about iraq? >> governor romney, was the war in iraq a good idea worth the cost in blood and treasure we have spent? >> it was the right decision to go into iraq. i supported it at the time; i support it now. >> jon: but do you support it -- (laughter). now? >> we don't want another iraq. we don't want another afghanistan. that's not the right course for us. >> well, i guess that's not a flip-flop so much as a principled recognition because of the iraq war's current unpopularity. (laughter) you know what? iraq and afghanistan those are yesterday's wars. it's tomorrow's war that counts and if there's anything governor romney has been vociferous about lo these past 18 months it is his uncompromising belief that it's time to rattle our sabers at iran. >> this is a president who should have instead communicated to iran that we are prepared, that we are considering military options, they're not just on the table, they are in our hands. >> the president should have built credible threat of military action. when they see our military option in our hand, a possible blockade or ae
's wars. it's tomorrow's war that counts and if there's anything governor romney has been vociferous about lo these past 18 months it is his uncompromising belief that it's time to rattle our sabers at iran. >> this is a president who should have instead communicated to iran that we are prepared, that we are considering military options, they're not just on the table, they are in our hands. >> the president should have built credible threat of military action. when they see our military option in our hand, a possible blockade or aerial strikes they recognize we mean business. >> jon: we mean business mother (bleep)! (laughter) blockade! aerial strikes. pew! pew! we're going to get you, iran! all right. so here's your chance to contrast obama's appeasement through diplomacy with your freedom through strength. >> it's also essential for us to understand what our mission is in iran and that is to dissuade iran from having a nuclear weapon through peaceful and diplomatic means. we want a peaceful planet. we want people to be able tone joy their lives and know they'll have a bright and prospero
irrelevant. governor romney has changed his position on just about everything throughout his entire career. and that, i believe, bedevils the fact checkers who will say, "well, his official position is this, but then he did that. so it's hard to kw, but you can't really say, this is true because also that's true." if that's the context, if that's what's going on, then i'm not sure what can be learned at all about governor romney because the chances of him saying something different, doing something different once the election comes, based on his behavior during this campaign and while he's been running for president, are extremely high. >> let me give you an example of what people have learned. people know that governor romney is going to increase spending for the military. and that's a coequential difference. they know that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to ta
the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a president focused on taking care of americans. president obama has canceled all campaign events through tomorrow
governor romney during the primary has talked about privatize iing fema and budget cuts to them. he has not made similar comments since that debate and his aides insisted he would not abolish fema. he believes states should be in charge of emergency management and responding. that is from the romney campaign yesterday. so, we are turning to you to get your take. what is your trust level in the government during natural disasters? lew is in new york an independent. what is it like up there for you? caller: we are going through there crazy storm. i think the bureacratic system is definitely going to catch off guard until something is done about t. my trust in government at this point? if romney were to get in and that mindset of dissolving governme government, then when you have katrina and you have the storm we get the kind of response we got then and a lot of people suffering and basically on our own. that is the scary part. all back to the fact that it will get worse and worse over time and more and more heated that you have heard the thought that it is time to act and do something and
. >> nothing governor romney just said is true. >> yes it is! (laughter) you apologized. not only that, you bowed to leaders all over the world! that is not presidential! f.d.r. never bowed to foreign leaders. (laughter) he never even stood for them! (laughter) but obama -- (cheers and applause) -- obama, obama will bow to anyone! hell, after the debate he bowed to romney's grandson! (laughter) and, folks, great points by romney but it's not just what romney said it's the way he didn't say it. >> the president had a very intent look on his face. i wouldn't describe it as a mean look, i would describe it as a man looking for opportunities to strike. >> governor romney, it seemed to me, had this kind of benign default expression in which he appears to be interested most of the time, he has a slight smile on his face but not a smug one. i wonder if hi his was not the more attractive default expression. (laughter) >> stephen: yes! romney's face totally kicked obama's face's ass. (laughter) jimmy, put up romney's default expression. see? see? that's nice. that reminds me of a benevolent angel wa
or proper for either president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign trail. they're operating with very little information. we can't know at this point just how devastating the damage might turn out to be. as a result i think both campaigns are being very cautious about what they do other than paying attention to the storm. >> woodruff: susan, what's your read on how the campaigns are dealing with all this? >> i think there are two things to look at. one is just the logistics, for instance, does this storm affect early voting that's going on now in ohio and north carolina and virginia? but a second thing is the larger atmospherics. what is the effect of having president obama go off the campaign trail back to the white house? the white house just this afternoon released a photo of him meeting in the situation room to get an update on storm damage. it seems to me that has an impact on a race where governor romney has been making some progress in recent days. does this kind of freeze things for where they are now. >> woodruff: that's what i wanted to ask you, susan. does one can
. governor romney today focused on fund-raising for the victims of the deadly storm while president obama canceled his events through wednesday to monitor the aftermath in response to hurricane sandy from the white house. we have team coverage here tonight. rick leventhal on the devastated jersey shore. shannon green on the storm damage in virginia, and ed henry tonight from the white house on the storm's political impact and the campaigns that are, tonight, frozen in place. many east coast residents heard or read weather forecasts and there's speculation about hybrid storms of the hurricane and nor'easter, perhaps, a super storm, as sandy approached, and they were understandably skeptical of what often turns out to be exaggerated meteorological storm forecasts. tonight they and millions of others find themselves suffering through what has turned out to be the mass devastation, wreckage, and misery that had been forecast for the eastern seaboard. fox news correspondent rick leventhal has our report from point pleasant, new jersey. >> reporter: point pleasant beach is one of many seaside c
, and george w. bush. >> woodruff: dan, what about a role for governor romney at a time like this? >> well, it's minimal at this point. i mean he really has to remain essentially iisibe. he can't lok like he's trng to do anyingoxplit the politics of the moment. so in a sense there's more potential up side for president obama, but as susan said more potential down side for governor romney i think it is a matter of just kind of waiting and watching and then deciding at what point he can go back out. i mean one of the issues is, does this short circuit kind of the surge of energy that we've seen around the romney campaign? there's no question that there is more energy out there in the republican base and at events he's been holding. does this affect that in some way that would be detrimental to him? ese are all he questions that we n't answer tight. >> woruff: because we just don't know when they're going to be back on the trail. there's no way to gauge that. >> that's exactly right. i mean, we obviously know they'll be back out at some point later in the week. but we don't know quite they will b
the reports of governor romney's latest ad saying that the president had allowed jeep to move to china. he went back to washington and said of all the things he had said, probably her is my feeling is the most. -- that probably hurts my feelings the most. and never had any money when i was a kid. the first new car i ever owned i was 30 years old was a jeep. i would never move the jobs. it turns out that jeep is reopening in china because they made so much money. they can afford to do it. though never consider shutting down the american operation. they are roaring in america thanks to people like the people of ohio. in keeping with that, here is what i want to say that this election is about. i support barack obama because i think he has got better jobs plan, and better record, and a better budget plan, a better education plan, at a better health care plan than governor romney. if you listen to all the debates, the republican arguments come down to the. -- to this. we left him a terrible mess and in 4 years he did not fix it. we have finally discovered that middle-class people are having a

moderate immage of governor romney cannot obscure the fact he has committed to repealing that law. he wants to give -- i'm telling you. idiology over evidence. the government did it, must be something wrong. they want to repeal the law and give the money back to bankers. make the loans harder to repay, not guarantee the pell grants or the tax credits. on that grounds alone, you should re-elect president barack obama the president of the united states. [applause] >> i like it. he has a better health care position than gov. romney. they talk about how terrible obamacare is. oh, it's awful. how it robs medicare. a terrible burden. the worst thing we could do is stay with the status quo. last week, a big headline said, a big reason working peolpe in this country could not get a pay raise, so many of the employers have to pay health insurance premiums, and we spend literally 6% of our national income on health care. year.s on$1 trillion a sit was killing us. what has happened since obm amacare passed? two years in a row, when health inflation was half what it was -- the first time in 51 years th
on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these states, it's all silly. i think if governor romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill
campaign that governor romney u.s. canceled his campaign events will be holding a hurricane relief advance in ohio tomorrow. back to you. neil: thank you very much. we are getting word that of new jersey right now that holes was of the midsection, the northern section of new jersey are without power. by the way, that would include my wife and family, but it might be my wife's way of saying i really cannot be bothered watching a. al pretend it is a power outage. in all seriousness, that is the case. that would affect up to a million new jersey is, if you had said no 100,000 now without power in connecticut, likely upwards of 2 million in new york. you could add it up and see how they can quickly come to the prediction of 20-30000000 without power by tomorrow. the rainwater steepen and this gets worse. of course the situation in atlantic city, new jersey, the flood waters still rise. the ceanand the bay have met and the flood waters in between are the results that go from bad to worse. when we come back,t governor, bob macdonald, and what is happening in his state. floodwaters are pretty muc
and governor mitt romney announced that they've cancelled campaign rallies that were scheduled for both tonight and tomorrow and each of the candidates spent time today talking about the significant weather event. >> obviously everybody is aware at this point that this is going to be a big and powerful storm, and all across the eastern seaboard i think everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. >> speaking today with the national weather service and with folks at fema as they're preparing for the landfall of a very, very dangerous hurricane. it's going to affect a lot of families. it already has, and the damage will probably be significant, and of course, a lot of people will be out of power for a long time, and so hopefully your thoughts and prayers will join with mine and people across the country as you think about those folks that are in harm's way. >> so is monster storm sandy the october surprise of 2012? joining me now to talk about the impact of the storm and much more as it turns to politics, the author of here come the black hospitals, former clinton advisor dick morris. by the
's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> heavy rain and southwest of washington. where is sandy? right now outstanding is over pennsylvania, southwest philadelphia, continuing to and overnight it may a bit of a turn. strong winds and power lines and trees down. here's what i see tomorrow when the sun comes up moving out, iis think we will be surprised how branches are down area. the not finished yet. 53 in manassas, it is late at night, it is dark and you cannot is out there, but i think we are in for a rude awakening at daylight tomorrow of theseee the effects high winds. >> the right here for extended coverage of hurricane sandy. >> we are tracking a change in forecast, plus all the d with thessociate storm. don't go anywhere. storm. don't go anywhere. our special storm watch well, inside the brewer, there's a giant staircase. and the room is filled with all the
in this campaign between myself and governor romney. i'm surprised it didn't come up in one of the debates. >> cenk: here's how it could have come up, if you brought it up. did you notice, you mtv viewers i guess you care about this because you'll be around when things get really bad. although things are getting bad now. and he said he has a much different record than mitt romney. let me show you the good portions of his policies. he would double fuel economy for cars by 2025. he would increase solar and wind energy and eliminate $4 billion in annual tax breaks for oil and gas companies. he's tried to do that, and of course the republicans have blocked it. that's the good. let's show you the bad. the copenhagen summit which so many people had great hopes for that pretty much got nothing done. they had a voluntary agreement--wow. he has basically abandoned cap and trade. no question the republicans fought him on that, but there was no second effort at all. he has approved the southern half of the keystone pipeline and i tell you the minute he's elected--not the minute, i like to be accurate--but whe
that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. >> it's no wonder really. romney's answer to disaster relief being to shut down fema and place the burden of recovery on the back of the states and the private sector. something that might be a bit off-putting to governor christie on a day like today. we'll have more on the storm and the election in this hour but let's get to richard lui who is in battery park where the waters of new york harbor bashed into vulnerable flood zones. richard, 24 hours since the storm surge began there. how do thiges longs look right ? >> reporter: 24 hours ago looked a lot like this, a lot of white caps, stormy movement of the water. of course, the water at that point 24 hours ago was just starting to rise. since then in that 24 hours the city has been crippled. we're talking about $20 billion in infrastructure damage, $10 billion to
and the people in their states. however last year it was during one of the primary debates where governor romney had this to say about what should happen in fema. take a listen. >> fema is about to run out of money and some people who say, you know, maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should take on more. how do you deal with that? >> absolutely, any time you have occasion to send it back from the federal government and send it back to the states and if you can go further and send it back to the private sector. >> the president signed these major disaster declarations for the state of new jersey and new york. they seem to be grateful for the help of fema and the president. wouldn't president romney want to do away with fema and ship those resources back to the states? do we know for sure? >> yea. absolutely. he's not opposed to that by any means. i think what the governor is talking about and we've seen cases in the past is trying to make sure that fema is the most effective agency possible in terms of affecting states and localities with disasters and it's always been a major concern i
. does he really think that? >> these are not my words. these are governor romney but these are from the republican primaries when he was a bit more free to express his, quote unquote, severely conservative views that he is now trying to hide a bit more in the general election, and trying to win swing voters and independent voters, and this was not too long after the major tornado in missouri the earthquake in virginia. these are not abstract theoretical disasters. he was asked what should the federal government do? and in the zeal of the republican party running as far as it can to the right, he said not only it is immoral for the federal government to keep doing this, but they should evolve down to the state or even privatize it. >> how it is that government officials don't appreciate what an effective government program can do? i know we have had a lot of problems, but the whole concept behind government is to be the entity that is not profit driven but community oriented. >> exactly, does he prefer a private institution that wants to make a profit off o
president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to
of their time and it gives the president to act like a president and what governor romney did not want was a president doing what he is supposed to do and he attacking the office. >> so is it back to the economy as we go to the end of the week? >> well, that's right. i was told in tampa that will be the deciding factor and that's what romnthink will elect him. >> there's some talk. could they move election day because of what happened on the east coast? >> let me clarify this since 1845 the election date is the first tuesday in november. after the harvest and before winter. there has to be a federal law and they would have to come back and change the election date. what can happen is that the counties can extend voting hours and start earlier or close later and make adjustments like that but tuesday november 6 is election day and about a third of the people would have voted before election day any way. >> there's nothing to do with the weather but this could affect the outcome of the election. what swing states have automatic recounts? >> florida and colorado if it's the range of .05 w
john roberts live in kettering, ohio. >> both governor romney, congressman ryan, president obama and the vice president off the road. this was supposed to be a campaign event. they turned it into a relief effort. people were asked as the private admission bring some canned goods, dry goods, water, something like that. a lot of people got that message and showed up. they are collecting quite a few supplies. a lot of people didn't get that message, though, and really came here kind of empty handed. maybe they were still expecting some kind of a campaign event. no formal remarks though governor romney did stand up in front of the crowd, thanked them very much for coming down and said this is a time for the nation to come together to help those in harm's way. here is what the governor said. >> some went to the grocery store i see and purchased some thins that these families will need, and i appreciate your generosity. it's part of the american spirit, the american way. we won't be able to solve all the problems with our effort this morning, though a lot of people will still be lookin
days for both governor romney and president as well. the president staying off the campaign trail today, staying at the white house. he has done a few teleconferences. we're hearing briefing happening here because of the storm. mitt romney staying in ohio. he set up in some of his centers. we heard from the republican national committee yesterday, they're turning some of their campaign centers to collect canned goods and donations as you heard the governor talk about today. we'll keep an eye on all that is happening in the campaign trail. it has become a little bit of a second thought, jon, to what is going on here. here we are, a week away from the election. jon: we have such massive work ahead in this country, it seems, you know, make as political campaign seem a little bit pet te -- petty. jon: the streets are flooded in maryland, filled with debris in many places. a superstorm blitzing the area overnight with wind gusts over 65 miles an hour. ocean city experiencing destruction shn the historic pier on the boardwalk. some say conditions are worst they have ever seen. we have the dir
in a battleground state today with governor romney but didn't hold a campaign event per se with the relief event that they hold. again, being in ohio obviously has a campaign aspect to it. he's resuming campaigning tomorrow and has a full schedule in florida tomorrow. president plans to tour the disaster areas in new jersey with governor christie tomorrow afternoon, and then i think with that -- there had been some question it was my understanding they were working on this planning. the question was whether new jersey would be ready to receive the security entourage that comes with the president tomorrow or wait until nurse? the fact they're doing it tomorrow indicates the presid t president's campaign schedule is likely to resume thursday. >> anyone that predicted romney would campaign is right. >> more on that later, toure. lower manhattan saw a record storm system last night. a picture is worth a thousand words. this tells that story. we had the last high tide of potential concern earlier today. where is the water right now? >> reporter: well, steve, right now the water level is from this po
